Portland area - how much time for city?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are looking to take a trip to Portland, OR in June. We'll have a week, and I'm wondering how long to budget for use in the city as opposed to outlying areas. I am also interested in seeing both the coast and Columbia River Gorge areas if possible.

We're both into art, shopping for antiques, Asian cultures (so looking forward to Chinatown, Chinese & Japanese gardens, outdoor activities like hiking and possibly biking. We would be renting a car for day trips, as it doesn't seem like there is public transportation that would fit our needs.

Also, in your opinion would Portland make a good base for day trips or should we try to get out of town in order to make the most of our time out of the city? I know that there's a lot of attractions within driving distance but didn't know if perhaps it might be nice to get out to a more secluded area for part of the time as well.

Thanks in advance.
